Moonstake today announced that it has successfully closed its seed round funding and has raised $1.04 Million (approximately JPY 110 Million). Partnerships with more than 10 public blockchains such as Emurgo (one of Cardano’s constituent corporations) and advanced products centered on staking wallets attracted a great deal of attention, leading to this procurement six months since it was founded. This procurement was carried out with Singapore-based venture capital firm Ruby Capital as the lead investor and financial investors with domestic and overseas bases as business partners.
Since Moonstake was founded, Moonstake has sought to meet growing demand in Asia and globally by developing its own innovative staking protocols. Moonstake’s product is a one-stop solution with staking capabilities that provides a gateway for users to facilitate their use of cryptocurrencies via web and mobile wallets（iOS / Android). Currently, Moonstake supports staking for ADA, Tezos, Cosmos, Ontology, QTUM, IRISnet, Harmon and further innovative products such as connection to DeFi via wallet will be developed in the future.
With this funding, Moonstake will step up its existing staking pool operations and wallet service offerings. In addition, while further expanding the products and services for businesses that we have been promoting, we will build a platform for decentralized finance (DeFi), which we have been connecting for some time, and a protocol for solving staking liquidity. We will promote innovative initiatives in the DeFi area with development.
Staking has been in full swing since 2019. Earlier this year, the market value of the staking market expanded 3.5 times in the 10 months from the beginning of the year, even in the single year of 2020, due to the PoS transition of well-known projects such as ADA and the start of staking.
Against this backdrop, Moonstake has been developing more user-focused staking products to create Asia’s largest staking pool network. The number of users continued to grow due to active alliances with public blockchains and marketing cooperation, and in October, Moonstake’s total staking amounted to over $50Million.

Moonstake has continued delivering recorded achievements in the crypto staking service industry, and Ruby Capital is excited to be part of its journey from Staking to Defi. We look forward to the joint-developments and bringing more values to the users of the Moonstake!
